Trees on the climb to Silozwane Cave

TreesTreesTreesI liked the shadows on the this rock, taken during the climb to Silozwane Cave. Whenever, I make that climb, I always am thankful for the views I can photograph! Boy, my calves nearly expire  half way up!

How long is the climb?

Not very high! Just I’m not the greatest climber in the world! Its about 20 minutes and nowhere do you have to use hands

How old are those paintings estimated to be?

They appear to be from about 30 000 years ago and earlier although I have not heard a definitive date. I just dont know why they dont carbon date them, so there is no controversy. Certainly there are many ages overlapping each other. Some of the paintings cover older ones
